Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, the condition that cost Kevin his leg, has been described as the most painful medical condition known to man – worse than childbirth or amputation. Also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), it’s a mysterious condition that can develop after apparently normal injuries to an arm or leg. In more than 90 percent of cases, the pain and skin changes spread from the affected limb; if initial drug therapy and other treatments don’t work, then amputation is often required to prevent the entire body from becoming a source of burning pain. Research into this frightening disease shows that it is a complex combination of physical, nerve and psychological conditions.
